Description

Daniel Kimani is an industrial engineering graduate. In a greenhouse of 1500 m2, he rears fish, and grows fruits and vegetables.

According to Daniel, with his greenhouse of just 1500m2, the productivity with the aquaponics system is like cultivating on one acre of land. In addition, his aquaponics system is powered by solar energy during the day and a bio-generator during the night. So, he is making use of green energy.

“We don’t depend on the paid energy, we have solar and biogas. And also, the plants don’t require fertilizer, so the cost of production stands only for a technician,” says Daniel.
